Melges 17 Zenda University ? All Graduated!

8 March 2007

08 MARCH 2007 ? It's official! The Melges Scow sailing season has started. The Lake Eustis Sailing Club in Eustis, Florida opened their doors for the Melges 17 and C Scow Midwinter Championships! Getting the season off right called for some instruction ? everyone wants to sail their Melges boat to the max!

A special Melges 17 Zenda University Race Clinic commenced around noon on Thursday so that the entire fleet could prepare for championship racing which begins on Friday. Sunshine, a moderate breeze and 80 degrees allowed the snowbirds to thaw out a little and enjoy some spring like sailboat racing.

The turnout was large with the majority of the fleet participating. Starts, practice races, sets, takedowns and onshore demonstrations highlighted the day. The Midwinter Regatta officially kicks off on Friday with a tremendous turnout on tap. This is the Melges 17's second Midwinter Regatta in it's young history and already as many as twenty boats will be racing! Every team learned something to take to the intense racing yet to come! All graduated!
